It was looking good for the weekend. Years ago I was a competitive rower and since moving to Yukon, I hadn't been on the water in my rowing shell. I no longer had my racing shell, but still had my recreational open-water shell. Rowing on Kluane Lake has long been on my bucket list. So we loaded my shell on the truck and headed off for a night of camping at Congdon Creek campground on Kluane Lake.
When we arrived the water was flat calm. Stunning! Before setting up camp, I headed out. Then if the wind came up, I'd feel okay about it!
I hadn't been on the water for about eight years, so it was a workout! It didn't take long to get back into it and find my flow. As before, I loved it! Needed a rest after a while though, so we headed off for a dog walk. The lake continued to be amazingly calm!
We had invited the folks in the campsite next to us to join our walk. They did and it was enjoyable!
The water was staying calm! And so I headed out again!
It was an amazing day with some wonderful rowing. Cross another one off the bucket list!
